I keep forgetting to take before pictures of all the stuff we're doing! I'm all for saving money, and we looked and looked for an affordable white dresser. Then I remembered this old dresser from high school that was collecting dust! It was a midnight blue with gold stars and moons all over it. I did this last night So pleased with the result. We already had the paint so didn't cost us a dime. Not too bad :]

Great idea! We bought an old dresser on Craigslist to refinish. It's the right height to double as a changing table, too!

Your dresser looks great!

Looks great! We are refinishing one too but unsure what colour to use as the nursery colourscheme isn't decided yet.

Here's mine!

Before:


After:

Needs a tiny bit of touchup after going up the stairs, but I like the looks so much better now! It's only three drawers even though it looks like more.

I love it!! I was going to have DH cut those handles off ours and replace them with knobs but got impatient, lol. I'm just going to add a furniture applique to the top drawer whenever I get around to ordering the one I want.
Yours looks great!

Both of those turned out cute!! I'm having a local gal paint the twins dresser which is now an oak color. I'm having her paint it yellow. I can't wait!
